Website Development and Hosting

The website was initially developed using Flask, a Python web framework, and hosted on Google Cloud Platform. Its source code has been managed through GitHub, utilizing GitHub Actions for continuous integration and deployment. This setup included automated building of the website as a Docker image and deployment to Google Cloud Platform.

Subsequently, the hosting was transitioned to Amazon Web Services, specifically using AWS Elastic Beanstalk for streamlined management and deployment. Finally, the website was moved to GitHub for hosting, providing a unified platform for both code management and website hosting. The site is built on a Bootstrap theme.
